One of Vancouver’s biggest handmade markets is returning to the PNE Forum this month.
Taking place from Friday, April 19 to Sunday, April 21, Make It! is set to feature more than 200 of your favourite “Makies” — aka Canadian artists. That includes crafters and makers who will be selling gorgeous handcrafted items.
It’s an atmospheric shopping environment where you’ll find something for everyone with accessories, jewellery, clothing, art, home decor, food, and much more for sale.
There’s also items for kids — and baby items.
And the best part? It’s made with love, so you can feel good about what you buy — and inspired by creativity.
There’s also going to be a beer garden where you can hang out in between bursts of shopping. You’ll also find food trucks onsite and hear awesome music throughout each day of the event.
Make It! has grown to be one of the biggest craft fairs in Canada since 2008 with bi-annual events in Vancouver, Edmonton, and also Calgary. More than 900 ‘Makies‘ participate in the shows and in 2016 close to 100,000 shoppers came out to support them.
